Incisal-Edge Strength of Porcelain Laminate Veneers Restoring Mandibular Incisors


Pages: 441-446
PMID: 1290573

Porcelain laminate veneers can be used to increase incisal-edge length. The purpose of this study was to determine the fracture resistance of porcelain veneer restorations on Cymel 1077 mandibular incisors that were incisally reduced 0.0, 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0 mm. Variables studied were incisal-edge length and the angle of applied force. Sixty-one porcelain laminate veneers were made to restore incisal-edge length and bonded to the prepared teeth. Samples were fractured at force angles of 130 degrees and 137 degrees. No significant difference was found between varying incisal-edge lengths (P > .05). However, the lower applied angle required greater average force to fracture (P = .005) as tested by ANOVA.
